Why We Love This Hotel

  • This converted coaching inn is between Banbury and Oxford in the village of Aynho, known as the Apricot Village due to the abundance of fruit trees
  • The Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with its rolling landscape and chocolate-box villages, is 20 minutes' drive away
  • There's a cosy bar with a flagstone floor and a wood-burning stove


The Cartwright Hotel is a Grade II-listed former coaching inn dating from the 16th century. It is near the Oxfordshire/Northamptonshire border between Banbury and Oxford in the quintessentially English village of Aynho, known affectionately as the Apricot Village due to the abundance of fruit trees. Legend has it that villagers in the cottages used to give apricots to the lords of the manor as rent.

Broughton Castle -- a grand, moated manor house with ornamental gardens -- is around 15 minutes' drive away, or you can visit the Cotswolds countryside, Silverstone Circuit or Bicester Village designer shopping outlet, which are all within 20 minutes' drive of the hotel.

Bletchley Park, the British Motor Museum and Waddesdon Manor -- a 19th-century country house built in the Neo-Renaissance style of a French château -- are all less than 35 minutes away by car.

The hotel features an oak-beamed real-ale bar with an oak floor and a wood-burning stove, and dishes served in the candlelit restaurant are made from locally sourced seasonal ingredients. Bedrooms are individually designed and have free Wi-Fi. They are split between the main building and an extension at the rear of the property.
